The Not Quite ‘Done Deal’ XI Of Players Arsenal Almost Bought This Summer
This potential Emirates Stadium side would certainly have ended lengthy silverware drought!
It’s been a frustrating summer for Arsenal fans. Having gone an eighth season without silverware and with the promise of a massive transfer war-chest the Gunners faithful will have hoped that Arsene Wenger was ready to bring in some much needed additions to boost his Emirates Stadium squad.
Though Wenger has brought in French Under 20 international Yaya Sanogo, a free transfer, but the Arsenal manager has missed out on a number of apparent targets, some of whom were seemingly very close to making the move to North London, others perhaps no more than a pipe dream.
Goalkeeper – Julio Cesar (QPR)
Left-Back – Daryl Janmaat (Feyenoord)
Centre-Back – Adil Rami (Valencia)
Centre-Back – Ashley Williams (Swansea City)
Right-Back – Atsuto Uchida (Schalke)
Central Midfield – Cesc Fabregas (Barcelona)
Central Midfield – Luiz Gustavo (Bayern Munich)
Playmaker – Bernard (Shakhtar Donetsk)
Forward – Gonzalo Higuain (Napoli)
Forward – Luis Suarez (Liverpool)
Forward – Stevan Jovetic (Man City)
An impressive XI. Arsenal fans will hope that Arsene Wenger does bring in new talent before the transfer window slams shut on September 2nd.
